Papers will be presented in a single stream during Tuesday 12 and Wednesday 13 November.  This year will mark the first time the conference has visited Sydney since 2014.

Invitations are sought for 30 – 45 minute oral presentations under the theme:

Change Management in an Agile World

Change is required in technology based organisations in order to continuously improve and to remain adaptable in an ever-evolving landscape. New innovations in laboratory technology and scientific instruments are impacting on the Laboratory Manager’s ability to manage change effectively. A Laboratory Manager needs to manage change without seriously impacting workflow, whilst promoting collaboration and offering agile solutions to all challenges put before them. Presenters at this Conference will focus on changes occurring within the laboratory workspace and solutions to manage the consequent change.

Closing date for submission of abstracts is July 12, 2019.  For further information, see the document below.
